Description: Automatic Curved Heel 5 Bar Gates x 2no

Location: Morton Morrell, Warwickshire

Process: This gate was commissioned alongside a matching colour automatic garage door, pedestrian side gate and a larger pair of wooden manual access gates. A later addition to the property was a second exit gate.

The gates are traditionally constructed from Iroko hardwood with a fully stained finish. The gates were hung from specially reinforced stone piers.

Automation is installed through the FAAC 415 electro mechanical surface mounted operator arm with a security electro mag-lock fitted to the slam post. This prevents the gate from being forced open and damaging the operator. The gates are operated via hand held transmitters which are set up the work the garage doors from a different button on the remote handset. Visitors are catered for by the wireless RF intercom and built-in key pad - this means that when a visitor presses the intercom button, the cordless rechargeable phoneset in the house rings. The house owner then presses the large red button to answer the caller, before pressing a second button to open the gate.

Safety equipment installedare a set of photocell beams and two underground induction safety loop detector. Once the client gained planning approval we came along and installed a duplicate gate system thus providing an in and out gate entrance to the property.
